Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

Beautiful if slightly sandy wide hands dihedral to a first crux gaining a good rest. A short section of off width or dicey chimneying through a flare gets you into the belly of the beast where knee bars provide access to bomber hand jams over the roof. Crux: getting your head out from under the roof (take your helmet off!)

Location

On the right end of Cat Wall this obvious flaring dihedral is a few routes to the right of Johnny Cat and Cat Burglar (the obvious splitter finger cracks under a large roof). Bloom Second Edition: Route #60

Protection

Per Bloom (1) each 1.5-2.5, (2)3.0, 4(3.5), (2)4.0, (1) #4 camalot.

Fun climbing and unique route. I award stars on this one for the interesting moves and wild exit from the upper chimney/slot, but much of the route is only two stars. Aug 28, 2013
